Anyone else see this? Looked like it was Blu Hera with beige/cream interior I think around 14k miles. there were 2 bidders going at it. Insane....

I saw it on Motortrend channel yesterday. I'll try to find a link, I believe the auction was in Pennsylvania.

That's comical. Anyone have a good reason why it went for so much?

Mecum does a pretty good job of marketing their cars and I am guessing that is part of the reason. The other more well know reason is you had two bidders and both wanted the car. Pretty amazing nonetheless and would love to know the reason the car went so high. Could be the market is moving in a direction that us mere mortals don't comprehend.

Clearly it sold for so much because it has the extremely rare and most beautiful Cuoio Olympus tan interior color. Well, at least that's what I'd like to believe since I've got the same thing on my black '08!

Maybe someone really wanted it because it was from Asi Sheikh's private collection (whoever that is) or part of the sale went to charity or something?

My dad refers to televised car auctions as a "Rich Man's Pissing Contest". Like stated earlier, I bet it was two guys with means who really wanted the car.

Sorry DiabloClyde, I am going to have to pass on your offer.... for now.

This would be a Unicorn if the Mecum description is correct. A 5.2 was not available on the 2007 Gallardo, it should be a 5.0/520hp car. Mecum mentions the 5.2 no less than 3 times.

on is correct. A 5.2 was not available on the 2007 Gallardo, it should be a 5.0/520hp car. Mecum mentions the 5.2 no less than 3 times.
Mecum also mentioned Bianco White here, not sure if that was the name back then which sounds funny to mention the same color in two different languages.

but it looks ballon white to me.

It is a unicorn in that colorway with interior. specially at that milage
